ANDREW BROOKS is a Senior Lecturer in Development & Environment in the Department of Geography, King's College London.

Drawing on extensive fieldwork in southern Africa his early publications examined connections between production, consumption, and waste, as well as the geographies of combined and uneven development. Recently his research has become more theoretically informed and focused on questions of global comparisons as well as the relationships between urban change and the environment. While retaining a deep interest in Africa, his work is increasingly focused on the UK and Portugal.

He is Chair of the Postgraduate Board of Examinations and was an Editor of the Journal of Southern African Studies (2015-19). A first book ‘Clothing Poverty: The Hidden World of Fast Fashion and Second-hand Clothes’ was published by Zed Books in 2015, with a second edition in 2019 and reprints in Spanish and Japanese. His next book was ‘The End of Development: A Global History of Poverty and Prosperity’ was also with Zed Books (2017). Andrew is completing a new book provocatively titled ‘Bullshit Comparisons’.

His work on international development, and especially the fashion sector, reached international media including Al Jazeera, BBC News, CNN, The Economist, The Guardian, Le Monde, The New York Times and Newsweek.

1.0 out of 5 stars Ignores the existence of Palestine
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 28 April 2022
The atlas completely ignores the existence of Palestinian state. Palestine is recognised by vast majority of other states, and is considered a partially recognised started like which is no different to Israel. Completely erasing it from the map normalises Israeli occupation.
